Chief Economist leaves US regulator for MIT.
The US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has announced that its chief economist, Andrei Kirilenko, will depart the agency for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Kirilenko will take up the post of professor of the practice of finance at the university's Sloan School of Management. His career with the CFTC started in 2008, and since then, Kirilenko has chaired both the Subcommittee on Data Standardization and the Subcommittee on Automated and High-Frequency Trading. He was appointed as the CFTC's chief economist in 2010, and represents the CFTC at both the Systemic Risk Committee and Systemic Data Committee at the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC).
The CFTC did not comment on whether Kirilenko would remain involved with the Subcommittees following his move to MIT later in the year.
